The city by night... (iv)

Vista of the street

The Centre (the skyscraper) & a restaurant, Peel Street, Hong Kong

PS. A little series of the moments that the city (concrete jungle) magically and suddenly becomes an enchantment to me - when evening falls and lights are on.:-)

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

A telling mixture of older and newer styles, and with your usual magic touch.

Wonderful composition, Hugo. I love the combination of the skyscraper and the sign on the building. It creates a nice tension and compliment. The massive and towering and the intimate and singular. A place to find shelter inside, lit up by spotlight to show you the way. The patterns in the grate and in the skyscraper are a nice combination as well. Excellent, and you know I love your night lights!
